So the other day, I started getting annoyed with one of my dreads. It just wasn't doing anything aside from being straight hair with an elastic on the end (this is 4 months too!) So I decided to rip and twist it....
OMG!!!! it was wonderful. That stubborn hair is almost as tight as the rest of them now!
of course....the next day.....
There was another one that I thought could use some ripping and twisting. I ripped it down to the roots and now I have two. :) The two are in better condition than the one was, but it was really strange to split it.
oh yeah, and I have a bunch of purple and red dreads now too. I'll post pics soon.
ahhh!! i took a shower and slept on my wet hair and some of my dreads kind of came out. theres loose hairs everywhere. : ( did this happen to any one else? will they magically go back into my dreads? im thinking of cutting all of my loose hairs to the point where they actually are dreaded or really short so they can get in a dread. do you think that would work?
hey, someone was posting about having trouble putting shells in their hair. I just succeeded in putting a cute, conical shell in my hair, and I might be able to help them, depending upon what type of shell they're trying to use. What I did is I took the pointy end, and took a screw, and ever-so-gently punched a teeny tiny hole towards the top of the shell, and enlarged it bit-by-bit gently until it seemed thick enough to work a lock through (my dreads are pretty thin so I didnt have to break it too much). Then I took the screwdriver and broke off all the various shell-bits inside of the shell, leaving just the outside, and then I just put the lock through it. does that help? The whole idea might work for another shell too, as long as it's semi-similarly shaped?
